About: “She name-checked glamorous Americans of the 1930’s in her show notes, specifically Viscountess Thelma Furness, Lady Emerald Cunard, and Duchess of Windsor Wallis Simpson, all of whom might’ve worn Fortuny’s famous, finely pleated tea gowns in their day. Wang is clearly trying out a new direction—there was no jewelry and no clusters of crystal and tulle in today’s show.” -style.com
Key Pieces: pleated skirts, feather accented vests, leather trim vests, fur & leather jackets, pleated tops, pleated dresses
Accessories: oversized leather gloves
Hair/Makeup: dramatic, dark eye makeup with a subtle natural lip shade; the hair, for most of the collection was pulled into a loose, almost fluffy ponytail
Color Palette: slate grey, taupe, off white, olive green, red, dusty pink, black
Thoughts: Not a standout collection from fashion week but nonetheless still very elegant and pretty. The simplicity in her collection is refreshing and her use of pleating is perfection…the long, pleated dresses are simple and to the point, sure to be seen on all your favorite celebrities in the months to come!
What do you guys think? Simply perfect or could have used a little bit more accessorizing?
